The privacy and confidentiality of all present and former student records are preserved at Central Carolina Technical College. Student records are maintained and safeguarded by the Student Records Office. Each student has the right to inspect and challenge the accuracy of his or her records.
Separate files are maintained for records in the following categories:
- financial aid
When justified by legitimate law enforcement needs, the campus security agency may maintain confidential records relating primarily to its investigative function.
According to the Family Educational Rights & Privacy of 1974, as amended, (FERPA) whenever a student has attained 18 years of age or is enrolled in a postsecondary institution, the consent to issue records and the rights of viewing those records are required of and accorded to the student alone. Therefore, only the student may view his or her record or request in writing an issuance of the record. If parents or other designated individuals wish to review or receive copies of a student record, they must have the student’s written permission to view or receive a copy, or the parents must provide evidence that the student is a dependent of the parents. A copy of this information will be maintained in the student’s record.
Central Carolina Technical College will not release information to any other party without written consent from the student except in the following cases:
- Faculty members or administrators at Central Carolina Technical College may have access to a student’s academic record if they can demonstrate justification.
- Release of student information to local, state, or investigative/law enforcement agencies will be permitted only to those designated by law.
- A duly authorized representative of the College may release student information, which is specifically requested to lawyers for the plaintiff and defendant upon subpoena issued by proper court authorities.
- Names and academic records of those students who graduated the previous spring may be forwarded to their respective high schools for statistical purposes.
In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, certain directory information may be released for currently enrolled students. This directory information will only be released exercising extreme caution, so as not to cause harm to our students. If students wish not to have this information released, they must make the request in writing each academic year. This request must be filed with the Office of the Registrar.
